Video: 'Marriage is a conservative value...'
"…not that conservatives own it or liberals own it, but the loving relationship between individuals that want to be respected by their society and treated as equals is a conservative value. It involves liberty and privacy and association and identity, marriage is a building block of our society. Young people get it. Older people are still getting it. But all of the polls are changing. People are more and more understanding that these are American citizens, these are our brothers and our sisters, and we have got to treat them right, we have got to treat them decently, we have to give them the same freedom and justice that we give to other people. More and more people in America are understanding that,Ii'm pleased to say more and more Republicans are understanding that. I'm sad to say -- it makes me sad to say -- that Republicans haven't fully understood it, but I think the day will come, and every time we have a chance -- David Boise and I -- have a chance to address the question, we believe we're converting more people and persuading more people that this is the right thing."
